Loved the views and tour on the cable car was great fun. Good weather is a must or there would be nothing to see. Keep a look out for the monkeys!

Beautiful views, amazing panorama. Truly worth every dollar you spend on it. All well organized, cafe bars and restrooms plenty. I would just suggest going there with a guide - not only you will cut through all the waiting lines but will get some interesting stories about Rio. Truly great experience

I booked a tour for the Christ redeemer and sugar loaf mountain for early access... All I can say is DO IT! It was well worth the early start to beat the crowd and the heat. Our tour guide was Marcos and he was amazing. Told us so much was friendly and easy to talk to and made the experience 10/10. Such a great tour!

This will be a "must tick off" on any Rio travellers list. It's a very impressive site but expect to be herded like tourist cattle. Selfie sticks will abound. Well worth seeing it is a very impressive view from the top. Top tip: take the trail from the beach and walk up the jungle path to the second cable car station to escape the tourists and possible see some cool monkies. And save a few Reis on the cable car fare as a bonus!

Most people don't know that you can hike up the mountain! It's a great moderate hike the forest. There is a second trail that goes completely to the top, however, I'd recommend climbing shoes and ropes for the last part. Hike the first part though, it's worth it!!! You can take the cable car up to the next level and then back down again.
